Car Boot Sales

Second and Fourth Saturdays of the month, from 7.30am to around noon.  On site at Cornerstone - Whare Karakia o Manako   $5 per "car boot" *(or space on site).   Enquiries: email or phone/text Mary 021722938.  This is an "all seasons" event now: if it is wet, sellers are invited to bring their goods into the Hall.

The first sale on site was held on Saturday 14 January 2017 and the photo below shows the view from the top of the path already by 7.30am.

The Union Church has been well-known for its Car Boot Sales over the years.  They began at the old church building, where the Countdown carpark now is, being held once a month in the carpark, or in the Hall if it was wet.  It was a long wait between leaving that site in June 2010 till opening the new building at the very end of 2016 and, in the meantime, community demand, had the sales underway again, on the empty site (see below) and once building began, on sites elsewhere in town.  Fairway Drive was the longest running alternative, with grateful thanks to Mary and Bill Fenton for letting the site be used for this purpose.
